Rocky Road Brownies

Homemade decadent chocolate brownies topped with melted marshmallows, chocolate chips, and walnuts. A classic brownie!

Brownies are my weakness.

Oh and chocolate chip cookies.

By the time afternoon hits, I am on the hunt for one thing and one thing only…CHOCOLATE. It is what gets me through homework, running kids around, and dinnertime.  If I am looking for a baked good that will do the trick, it is a brownie or chocolate chip cookie every single time. Hence, the reason I like to bake almost on the daily.

I grew up with a Dad who would buy anything at the store with walnuts in it. If there was a specialty ice cream with walnuts in it, he was hook line and sinker for it.  So I decided to make a brownie just for my Dad.  This recipe is for you, big Daddy!

I am obsessed with my homemade Better than a Boyfriend Brownies recipe! If you haven’t tried it, it is legit.  So I decided to make it a little more gourmet by adding marshmallows, chocolate chips, and walnuts. It became the ultimate Rocky Road Brownie.

These Rocky Road Brownies start off with a rich, ooey, gooey chocolate brownie. Once the brownies are almost completely baked, sprinkle on mini marshmallows, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and chopped walnuts.  Put them back in the oven to get the marshmallows nice, soft, and a tad melted.  They are downright heavenly!

How to make Rocky Road Brownies:

  1.  Start off by making this homemade chocolate brownie recipeThese brownies will come out slightly underdone because they will set up as they cool. 
  2. Before the brownies are completely baked through, remove from oven, and sprinkle with mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, and walnuts.  Return the brownies to oven and bake for 5 minutes longer, or until the marshmallows have become soft and started to melt.  You can use any type of chocolate chips — milk chocolate, semi-sweet, or dark chocolate.
  3. Remove from the oven and let set for 10 minutes before slicing.  I suggest dipping a sharp knife in hot water before slicing.

  1. 3 stars
    Good flavour but the brownie and marshmallow/chip topping did not work out for me. Some of the marshmallow stayed on the brownies, but a lot pulls off. Followed instruction but I saw this was a problem and marshmallows were just sitting on top of the brownies after somewhere around 10 minutes baking, so I took them out. Some of the brownie around edges got overcooked in this process.

  2. I am just confirming what I believe to be an oversight. I don’t see if baking pan should be well greased but I am quite sure it should be. I am looking to make these brownies in next few days. JUst have to finish off some lovely levain bakery style chocolate chip cookies I made with recipe off your blog. OOOOOOHHHHH delicious!
